Identify opportunities for waste reduction. Consider the following:

  • Setting: administrative, operational, clinical
  • Efficiency
  • Value to patient

Suggest a specific process change, for example eliminating supply waste, time management etc. The waste issue should be specific and propose a specific plan/intervention to address the waste issue.

There are two artifacts to be submitted this week, the memo and the power point with cited speakers notes.

Part 1- write out a Memo type communication to your staff. Approach this part as if you are sending out a memo to your staff. You will want to include what the change is and the rationale. Invite the staff to the training sessions. When explaining your findings, be sure to have a minimum of 2 peer reviewed articles/authors to support the rationale. This helps to make the communication an evidence-based communication and finding. 😊

Here are a few links on how to write a memo: Please be sure to follow the format for a memo including headings and cite your research with in-text citations.

Part 2- create a 7-12 slide presentation based on your communication above to present to your staff. Repeat the change and rationale. Then describe when and how the change will be implemented. A short timeline is always helpful for this type of project. Be sure to add in cited Speakers Notes and have a reference page. Please be sure to have a minimum of 2 peer reviewed articles/authors to support the change. Feel free to be creative.
